the feel, if you will, is starting to change a bit. > now when you say it is changing, is this more of a traditional - some might even stay healthy - environment to be trading in? > > sure. yes. i think that what we were seeing was somewhat inefficient, if you will; although, again, for anyone who was long, they were certainly enjoying it, and short-sided activity was paying the price, but it wasn't really efficient in terms of that two- sided activity. we are seeing much more two-sided anticipation right now. again, though, as i mentioned, it has been a little bit heavily weighted to the sell side, which is completely unusual for what we are used to seeing, even, for the most part, throughout this whole year. really the last few months have just been about upside activity and all about buy-side activity. so, we are actually seeing some rotational type trade occurring here, and we are seeing some activity, again as i mentioned, across the board, other major markets are starting to take notice. > all right, you have a good final day of the week trading today. > > thank you, you too.

did not change their spending habits as much. tuning in now to some corporate earnings, friday, two big-name stocks provided a lift to the markets. tiffany sparkled when it reported solid 4th-quarter results as sales in asia picked up, especially for silver jewelry, while darden restaurants also beat the street. revenue was up thanks to some new restaurant locations. however, it did see net income drop due to slower sales at red lobster. the chain has been in heated competition with fast-casual chains that offer quality food for less. darden's stock is up 9% this year. car buyers are taking out longer loans. research from jd power and associates shows a record 32% of car buyers took out 72-month loans, which is 30% more than a year ago. reasons why consumers are taking longer to pay off the big ticket purchase: interest rates are extremely low and car prices are on the rise. the average car purchase is $28,500. ipo stocks are surging. shares of marin software gained more than 40% after its ipo on friday and were going strong. model n shares topped $20 in its first week, but fell to

of copyright infringement. but as our cover story explains, that may change. it's considered by some a peculiar interpretation of copyright law. the librarian of congress, james billington, determined that "locking cell phones is an essential part of the wireless industry's dominant business model." it prevents us from legally buying one cellphone at a subsidized rate through a carrier and even after the service contract expires taking that phone to another carrier for use later. michael hodel tracks carriers for the financial data firm morningstar. "this is a situation where a technicality has been used to do something it was never intended to do." the obama adminstration says copyright law was never intended to be this restrictive. it's asked the fcc, commerce department and others to look into changing the law. if that happens, some predict the price of cellphones and smartphones may rise quickly. "it is no secret that consumers will pay more for phones, because the carrier isn't going to absorb the cost. they'll front-load the contracts so you'll pay more up-front and the value of the phone
